Details from Seller
This is a package deal for two vw vans. One is a camper (1999), the other is the 2000 gls (same engine, transmission). I had planned to replace transmission in camper using the perfectly good one from the gls, but my plans have changed.
I have titles for both. and will be posting some pictures and additional details re condition, new parts, etc. If you write, I will follow up ASAP.
Again, this is a package deal, but if you do not need/ want the gls, that’s fine.
A little more detail:
The GLS has appx. 140,000 miles on it. It was running, but needed brakes and catback exhaust when I purchased. Then the battery died, and when I tried jumping, couldn’t get it started. I think it may need a hall sensor as I tried coil from the camper, and it was still was not getting spark. But I didn’t get too far with that, as I was mainly interested in the transmission. I did drive it, and everything worked fine. No dash lights, etc. I have all the records, and the guy I bought it from is in Baltimore, he took pretty good care of it, and put about 5000 into it to your before I purchased, including new head gaskets. He had a handicapped daughter, so there is a wheelchair lift kit included with the vehicle, which has already been disconnected.
The camper has about 270 K on the odometer, and the engine was rebuilt just before I purchased. The guy had the engine and transmission done at the same time. He sold it to me because the transmission that he had rebuilt went bad not once, but twice. The second time he was in Virginia, and that’s how/where we met. (He lives in CO.) I did run it, and everything seemed to work, although I never tested things like the stove, shore power, fridge, etc. I began to prepare for the transmission switch, And some of this work has already been done. As part of that, I upgraded to the 16 inch wheels, and started to replace front suspension components. Overall the body is in good shape; it’s clean, and I see only minor surface rust on some of the suspension components, which is normal. The rooftop cargo carrier is cracked, and needs some fiberglass work, but otherwise serviceable. There may be a couple small holes in the pop top fabric, etc. I’m sure there are a lot of little odds and ends like that, but nothing out of the ordinary for a vehicle of this age. I hate to get rid of it. But I have other stuff going on that I need to deal with, including a pending home renovation.
